Professional relationship with Diablo Cody
Novick has taken part in several projects with screenwriter Diablo Cody, including Jennifer's Body, and Juno, for which he was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture in 2008, and won a Christopher Award and an Independent Spirit Award.
Novick claims to have found Diablo Cody by reading Cody's blog while she was a blogger living in Minneapolis. He found "her voice [to be] so interesting and so fresh". Inspired by her writing, he rang Cody and asked her whether she had ever considered writing a book or a screenplay. As a result of Novick's encouragement, Cody wrote the script which would become Juno.
Novick worked with Cody on Young Adult (2011) and Rock of Ages (2012), as well as an unmade cinematic adaptation of Sweet Valley High.
In 2008, Novick won both a Christopher Award and an Independent Spirit Award for Best Film for Juno. He was nominated for the Producers Guild of America and Academy Award for Best Picture also for Juno.
